A sensimilla is a mature but unfertilized female cannabis inflorescence. The word itself is of Spanish origin, and means “seedless”. Nowadays, sensimilla is grown by growers everywhere. If anyone has ever had a chance to try quality cannabis cones and get maryland medical marijuanas card online, then they have 100% tasted sensimilla. It’s important to understand that Sensimilla is not a form of cannabis, but the result of careful cultivation.
The THC content of female cannabis inflorescences increases as the flowers develop. It reaches its maximum by the moment of fertilization, which nature intended, and then decreases. If you prevent the pollination of the inflorescences by male pollen during cultivation, the flowers on the female flowers will fall off. In their place, ovaries form, which turn into false rafts – green-colored buds filled with resin. The amount of THC in such false fruits will be the maximum possible for the variety. In some strains, it can be as high as 22% to 27%.
Sensimilla takes longer to mature and will have a bulkier bud than the pollinated variety. These buds can be visually identified in the dried product by the presence of empty unfertilized seeds. The sensimilla is harvested when the un-pollinated fruits begin to burst and the crystals on them become amber in color.
Cultivating regular cannabis seeds, growers have to separate the male plants from the female plants in order to get the sensimilla. This is done during the initial flowering stage, when it becomes possible to determine the sex of the plant. But more recently, breeders have found a way to produce feminized cannabis seeds, which are marijuana seeds that are 100% likely to grow into female plants. This has made it much easier for growers, especially beginners.
According to statistics, in 452 cannabis samples seized by police in England between 2004 and 2005, the average percentage of THC in sensimilla reached 13.9%, while the average percentage of THC in regular cannabis samples was 2.1%. The medical use of sensimilla is limited because of its highly psychoactive effects. But unlike regular cannabis, inhaling the smoke from sensimilla produces fewer harmful substances in the human body.
